“I went to the Botball workshop knowing very little about programming and came out with a working robot that I programmed myself.”

Reusable Components

All components of the Botball kit, including building materials, robot controllers, sensors, and motors, remain with the team leader after the tournament for use in the classroom.

In a recent survey, 86% of Botball team leaders reported using these components for educational activities outside of Botball throughout the academic year.

Uses for a Botball kit outside the Botball season:

  • Incorporate the kit components into other courses such as physics, technology, or computer classes
  • Use individual elements to enhance activities within a class such as a simple machines lesson or data collection around the school
  • Prepare a fall challenge to get students excited about the new season
  • Allow students to check out the kit to do independent projects, science fairs or engineering fairs
  • Encourage students to build showcase robots for the Autonomous Robot Showcase at the Global Conference on Educational Robotics
